Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the design, inspiration and craftsmanship that goes into creating a Lomond Chronoscope Timepiece.
The Lomond Chronoscope, from Marloe Watch Co. Following on from our successful debut Kickstarter for the Cherwell, Marloe Watch Company is delighted to announce their follow-up campaign for the Lomond Chronoscope. Named after one of Scotland’s most famous Lochs, as well as countless cultural references, the Lomond expands the growing range of timepieces from MWC, which now includes the original Kickstarter campaign’s Cherwell and the new smaller diameter Derwent.
The Lomond Chronoscope is a manual mechanical wristwatch that includes a “stop-watch” feature, a ceramic bezel insert and exhibition case-back. It is 43mm in diameter x 11mm high (13.6mm to crystal zenith), 46.6mm tip-to-toe and has a 22mm strap-width.
We wanted to create a timepiece with a foot in both the traditional and the contemporary; with a strikingly unique yet reassuringly familiar design. For the Lomond Chronoscope we kept some elements of our earlier designs whilst developing a timepiece that stands apart, not just within our own range but also within the market it exists. This is a more complex mechanical timepiece, offering both accurate timekeeping and time measurement, therefore the design needs to reflect the need for additional information, whilst remaining true to our core belief of essentials only, clutter free design.
The Lomond Chronoscope comes in 4 colour-ways, split into Classic and Vintage aesthetics. For the Classics there’s a White and Grey dial, both with a Telemeter scale matt ceramic bezel. For the Vintage models, there’s a Coffee and Vanilla dial with a simple 60 second scale polished ceramic bezel.
